The original OmniPoint switch introduced fully adjustable actuation, the biggest leap in gaming keyboard innovation since the creation of the first mechanical switches, which allowed users to adjust between deep throws and feather-light touches. In addition to the compact form factor, come improvements on the fastest switches in the world. Now operating between 0.2mm and 3.8mm, the OmniPoint 2.0 switch gives users faster response and actuation times, along with even more adjustment potential than ever before. When adjusted to 0.2mm, the 0.54 ms response time offers the fastest keystrokes in the world*. Additionally, the introduction of OmniPoint 2.0 offers Dual Action keypresses, allowing users to program two actions with a single key to execute combos, such as walk and run, or pull out a grenade and throw it, all with one keypress.

Mini is mighty. For the first time, the fan-favorite and award-winning line of Apex keyboards offers a new more compact 60% design to free up desk space and allow for larger mouse movements, along with improved aesthetics, and more ergonomic positioning. With SteelSeries' innovative modifier key, full keyboard functionality is maintained in a smaller mini form factor – making the Apex Pro Mini keyboards the perfect size to fit within a backpack for on-the-go, esports tournaments, LAN parties, and those headed to their first dorm room or already enrolled in college.

  • Apex Pro Mini Wireless: Combining OmniPoint 2.0, the world's fastest key switches, with a new smaller 60% form factor, the Apex Pro Mini Wireless allows gamers to take a high-performance keyboard with them on the go. Quantum 2.0 Wireless ensures lag-free gaming and working while offering dual connectivity, so users can switch between 2.4Ghz Gaming Grade Wireless and Bluetooth connectivity wherever they go. Rated at 100M keystrokes, the OmniPoint 2.0 switches need the right keycaps to match, and double shot PBT keycaps are the perfect pairing, delivering unrivaled durability so they last from the first press to the last. On May 23, FaZe Karrigan became the first pro gamer to win a CS:GO major using a wireless keyboard (Apex Pro Mini Wireless).
  • Apex Pro Mini: Utilizing the new OmniPoint 2.0 switches, the Apex Pro Mini allows users to adjust between 0.2mm and 3.8mm, switching between weightless actuation and deep deliberate presses. The 60% design allows for more desk space, ensuring that big mouse swings go uninterrupted while offering better ergonomics when working and playing. Double shot PBT keycaps ensure the keycaps last as long as the switches, while side printed key functions allow users full keyboard functionality in a small package.
